Gallas 'confident' of World Cup fitness
Arsenal defender William Gallas is confident he will be fit to play for France in this summer's World Cup finals in South Africa. Gallas was carrying a calf injury when he was risked for the Gunners' Champions League quarter-final first-leg with Barcelona. The gamble did not pay off for Arsenal or Gallas as he was forced off at half-time, and he was ruled out for the rest of the season. Gallas is now confident he will be on the plane to South Africa with Les Bleus. The 32-year-old also refuses to blame Arsenal for the injury, as he insists he wanted to play against Barca. "I wanted to play in that match, because I am a competitor," he told CanalPlus. "I wanted to play against the best players and I had agreement from the medical staff and fitness coach. "Now my objective is not to suffer any relapse and I am confident. "If you are not confident, you can forget about the World Cup."
